Y2 Maths: The 2 hour challenge

Petition update · Old American Adventure Theme Park Map · Change.org


Look at this theme park! Theme parks were one of the businesses that were allowed to reopen by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, from Saturday 4th July.


Of course, it is still important that if you choose to visit a theme park, that you make sure you are social distancing.


Today, Mr Morgan wants you to plan your trip to the theme park you can see in the map. However, you only have two hours to explore the theme park, which means you can’t do everything!


You need to choose what activities you will do inside the time limit. Look carefully at the table below. It will tell you how long each ride takes.

Obviously, to be successful in this challenge, you need to know how many minutes is equal to two hours.


If I know 1 hour = 60 minutes, then I know 2 hours = 60 + 60 minutes.


If I know 6 + 6 = 12, then I know 60 + 60 = _____


So 2 hours is equal to 120 minutes.


In the comments, complete these extra conversion questions. Questions 1-4 are mild. Questions 5-8 are spicy, only try these if you dare.


  1. If I know 60 + 60 + 60 = 180, then I know 180 minutes = ___ hours
